Digit Expert | 28 Jan 2020

In the race to deliver the perfect bezel-less display experience, a notch was a temporary solution that was easy to implement but stops from offering a truly bezel-free display. Innovative designs like pop-up camera or rotating camera modules are what many OEMs have resorted to, to offer the much-demanded bezel-less experience. We look at some amazing smartphones you can buy right now that provide an immersive display without a cutout or a notch.

Huawei Y9 Prime

The Huawei Y9 Prime is a smartphone for all those looking to get an immersive viewing experience on a budget. The 6.59-inch LCD display dominates the front with minimal bezels thanks to a pop-up camera module that houses the 16MP front camera.

It runs on the HiSilicon Kirin 710F SoC and pairing this up with 128GB Storage and EMUI 9, the phone promises to handle most tasks with ease.

A premium display experience on a not so premium price. The 6.5-inch AMOLED display with no notch provides an immersive viewing experience, be it a casual game or an intense war drama.
